    My bantam brahma started crowing at around 10 weeks old. I still wasn't sure she was a he...until I heard it. Then Mable became Mister Mabel and he hasn't shut up since.[​IMG]

    I have to say, some of my roosters like to taunt me VERY early on. I've heard a screeching/crowing type noise coming from the brooder at a week or two old.
    I have a knack for hatching males and boy, do they let me know it.
    DH hears it and says, "Oh great, you've done it again". [​IMG]

    we're not allowed to have roosters in the city, so I'm terrified of ending up with one!

    Mine are usually 6-7 months or so when they start. Although one in particular was a VERY loud chick, chirping loudly all the time as if he were in pain. I'd pick him up and hold him close to me and he's shut up (we start spoiling early in this house lol). He eventually grew out of that and was quiet until about a month or so ago. Then he started crowing and let me tell you, his crow is as long as a country mile lol. Congratulations [​IMG]
